To some, the very thought of sitting down and watching a Disney cartoon is enough to make the stomach turn. I mean, all that cuteness and black-and-white perspective on right and wrong – what’s not to hate? Okay, so maybe it’s just me. Still, there are plenty of us out there that wouldn’t mind seeing something a little more realistic, even in a fantasy tale such as Snow White. Enter Disney’s new take on the tale. Maleficent brings us a new story, one that puts the villainess in the spotlight. And now there’s a featurette to introduce you a bit to what we can expect from this flick.
Listen to some of the cast and crew talk about Maleficent in this two-minute video:
I have to agree with the view that the character of Maleficent is definitely more interesting than that of Snow White. What makes a woman go evil? And what provoked all that crazy villain activity in the first place? Hopefully, Maleficent will answer those questions in a manner that both entertains and satisfies.
Check out Maleficent when it hits theaters on May 30th.
